Our facilitators

Anahat, Aday García

Originally from Gran Canaria. I have gone on a journey of self-discovery through the study firstly of Psychology in Granada´s University and then various forms of Yogic wisdom, including  Vedic studies, Tantra, and Yoga from different lineages(Shiv Yog, Vyaman, Hatha, Kundalini).

Learned from dynamic and energetic yoga, Ayurveda, Shiatsu, Thai massage, and Healing, participated in various dance workshops to explore liberation through movement. I am also trained in Biogestalt therapy, group dynamics, and art therapy.

I expresses gratitude for the guidance of the Shiv Yog lineage in my path for kundalini awakening and healing sciences, as well as Chögyal Namkai Norbu Rimpoche for his teachings on Buddhism and the nature of the mind.

Through all this knowledge I intend to serve and inspire everyone in their path towards fullfilment, healing and awakening, as it has helped me so deeply in mine.

They have already attended our retreats and say...

Stephanie, Sweden

My perception of life changed with a shift to higher vibrations. Although i return home to Sweden all the old places seemed brighter, happier, livelier. I feel stronger inside of me closer to myself and my path.

Sara, Scotland

Morning meditation and yoga by the pool, as lizards and butterflies played close by, was a very beautiful, spiritual way to start the day. The accommodation was in a clean, calming villa overlooking the hills and down to the beach. 





Sometimes we would practice meditation or a mindfulness activity in the mountains or by the beach, as well as swimming in clear, aquamarine natural pools or the sea. Breath work, manifestation, sound healing and ecstatic dance were wonderful new experiences for me. 


The program created such an authentic atmosphere that everybody bonded quickly, so even though I went on my own, I soon felt as though I was on a trip with a group of much loved friends. 

Helen Bissett, United Kingdom

We all have our own reasons to go to a Yoga retreat. For me, I had hit a crisis in my life and needed to find a way forward. I came to the retreat feeling broken and I left healed. The yoga practice, information shared, being close to nature, the challenging but often breathe taking treks, tasty and healthy food as well as the knowledge and compassion of the instructors all played a part. Something awoke within me and I left with the strongest desire to deepen and expand my yoga practice. Thank you.

The activities were well thought out and had a great build up to the end. A big positive surprise was the sweat lodge ceremony towards the end of the retreat. For me a personally confronting session that provided many insights and growth. Thank you for broadening my horizons, Aday. The experience was so much more than a regular yoga retreat. You deserve all five stars!

Anahat and Ricardo shared their island with us and brought us on beautiful hikes which as a “regular” tourist you would probably not get the chance to see. The mindfulness and hypnotherapy practices were really beneficial and I feel so much lighter mentally since I have come home. I really feel a shift in my way of being and the guys have really helped me to move on and let go from certain thought patterns and habits that were destructive and futile. If you feel stuck this is the retreat for you. All in all a fun, emotional, challenging week which will pay dividends for a long time to come. A special mention to Raquel also who provided the most delicious vegan food for us and invigorated everyone with her zest for life!

 The retreat was so nuanced, thought through, with the personal touch, reflections and wisdom of the instructors, full of light and amazing surprises. I have gained a spiritual family… 🥰❤️ There were so many little adventures and trips that we took, program adjustments / customization as per individual needs, deep and soulful talks by the fireplace and practices (very transformative and healing for me!). We were fortunate to see Tenerife from the very local and unforgettable side. After a few weeks I’m still thinking and feeling the warmth of the experience and unforgettable Tenerife… 🥰 And food also deserves a separate review 😉☺️ Rachel is a phenomenal cook!! The food selection was delicious, healthy, nourishing and healing ☺️ We also got a little surprise cooking workshop. All in all, I’m very grateful for the beautiful retreat and would definitely want to come back to Tenerife and Aday for more adventures and personal journeys. Thank you!!!

The fabulous chef made a great breakfast and 3 courses dinner every day, and a very good salad in our picnic-bag. As a meat lover I must say that I never expected vegan food for a week to be so great. In fact fantastic! Every day at 8am we had a morning session with Aday and Ricardo before breakfast, and another session in the evenings before dinner. In between they took us for a bush walk, a beach walk or something else. Aday did fabulous massages too. Ricardo gave us good sessions in mindfulness. After hours we had an informal debrief session sitting in front of the fire, sometimes meditating, sometimes listening to Aday and Ricardo playing guitar/ukelele. I can’t describe it all here, but I deeply recommend it.
Morning meditation and yoga by the pool, with the sun on my face and the soft breeze on my skin, as lizards and butterflies played close by, was a very beautiful, spiritual way to start the day. The accommodation was in a clean, calming villa overlooking the hills and down to the beach. In the mornings, you could stand on the terrace and watch the sun rise majestically over the clouds. Our hosts local knowledge allowed us to enjoy excursions to breathtaking mountains, beaches and the volcano, a world away from the busy resorts associated with Tenerife. Sometimes we would practice meditation or a mindfulness activity in the mountains or by the beach, as well as swimming in clear, aquamarine natural pools or the sea. Breath work, manifestation, sound healing and ecstatic dance were wonderful new experiences for me. The program created such an authentic atmosphere that everybody bonded quickly, so even though I went on my own, I soon felt as though I was on a trip with a group of much loved friends. The food was fantastic – Raquel is such a joyful cook and the healthy, varied recipes were delicious. I loved it.
